South Bend's Honey from the Hood is going National


South Bend's "Honey from the Hood" is headed to the National Beekeepers Competition in New Orleans.

The Honey is from South Bend Unity Gardens.  It's already won regional and state competitions so they wanted to try their luck out at Nationals.

In November Unity Gardens started a fundraising campaign to send their beekeeper Tim Ives to the National Competition.  They needed to raise $2500 by Wednesday night.  They managed to do it at the last minute.

Sara Stewart with Unity Gardens said, "last night we weren't sure, we were $400 away from it and through the night obviously younger people than I am, I go to bed early, came through for us."  Ives said, "It's exciting, really exciting to see all the people come together and make this happen."

The National Competition is next month.
